See results

FC Lusitanos is an Andorran football club from Andorra la Vella. They club was founded in 1999 and compete in the Campionat de Lliga, the Premier division in Andorra. The league is ranked 52nd out of 53 leagues entered in the Champions League with a league coefficient of 1.000. The club has a club coefficient of 1.100.

Lusitanos has been a very successful club the last few years in league play but it hasn't had any good luck in UEFA tourney's. Last year the club lost 9-0 to Valletta FC on aggregate. In 2011/12 they lost to NK Varazdin 6-1 on aggregate in the Europa League. In 2010/11 they lost to FK Rabotnicki 11-0 on aggregate in Europa League.

Lusitanos won the league title with 44 points. The league plays their first 14 matches with every club involved. They had 33 points after those 14 matches with ten wins, three draws and only one lost. The top four clubs make it to a championship round where they play six matches to determine the league champ. Lusitanos won three of those matches while drawing two and losing only one to win their second straight championship. They had a goal differential of +48 with 64 goals scored and giving up only 16 goals.

Manager Vicenc Marques is waiting on June 24th to find out who their match-up will be against on July 2/3 and July 9/10. We know now that their first round qualifying match-up could be against Shirak FC or EB/Streymur. Their is still one league that has not found their champion yet that could also be their first match-up.

Andorra has a very little success in Champions league. Last year we know Lusitanos lost 9-0 to Valletta FC. In 2011/12 FC Santa Coloma lost 4-0 to F91 Dudelange, they also lost to Birkirkara 7-3 in 2010/11 Champions league tourney. In 2009/10 Sant Julia defeated Tre Fiori 5-4 on penalties after finishing both legs tied at 2-2. They would lose in the second qualifying round to Levski Sofia 9-0. FC Santa Coloma lost to Kaunas 7-2 in the 2008/09 first round qualifying match-up.

I like Lusitanos chances of advancing to the second round. They have not done well in tourneys but i have a feeling things will change this year. I do not see a long run for them. If they can get Shirak FC in first round match-up or club from San Marino i see them advancing. The worst thing would be a match-up against EB/Streymur.
